Appliance Recycling

The appliance recycling program has been suspended for the remainder of 2020!


If you have an old second refrigerator or freezer parked in your garage keeping your soda pop or ice cream cold, it's probably costing you more money than you think. Did you know that it could use up to five times more electricity than a newer model, costing you an extra $100 or more each year in electricity?

RushShelby Energy’s appliance recycling program offers our members a quick and easy way to reduce your energy bill. Recycling your old refrigerator or stand-alone freezer is:

  • Economical – Not only will you save money on your electric bill each month, but you’ll receive a $50 bounty on your old appliance.
  • Convenient – We’ll come and pick up your appliance for free, at a day and time that works for you.
  • Environmentally Responsible – We’ll recycle over 95% of the appliance materials, and dispose of any hazardous materials according to EPA guidelines.

RushShelby Energy is now teaming up with Raintree Habitat for Humanity ReStore. Professionals will pick up your old fridge or freezer for FREE. Your $50 rebate check can be kept for yourself or donated to the Raintree Habitat for Humanity ReStore. 

To qualify for this program, the refrigerator or freezer must be in working condition and sized between 10 and 30 cubic feet (using inside measurements).  Only single-family, residential accounts are eligible. Contact RushShelby Energy to schedule your appliance pick-up by calling 765-544--2600 or Toll Free, 800-706-REMC.
